Only 6 weeks!
Chatter is chatter.

I blame this thread for my wanting to buy something more off roadable than a DL 650.

I thought this was a gun thread.

How about street bikes on dirt?


Just playing with y'all.

I'll go back and bother the FFs in DE and PA now.

Thanks to FreakingRt for going up on the roof and putting the chimney cap back on.

Dan, thanks for the warning. I think we'll just avoid you for a couple weeks.

Sic, I think you nailed it..
The symptoms of norovirus illness usually include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and some stomach cramping. Sometimes people additionally have a low-grade fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, and a general sense of tiredness. The illness often begins suddenly, and the infected person may feel very sick. Symptoms usually begin 24-48 hours after exposure to the virus, but can appear as early as 12 hours.
It's no picnic. Symptoms 2 and 3 can be simultaneous which really add another dimension to the fun.

Chuck, you may want to check on whether they have a two night minimum. Fri and Sat.

Hey, I just finished rebuilding this, and took it for a ride.

It's not a dirt bike.

FWIW, for the longest time, all I ever read on this thread was road riding stuff. I guess the "pendulum is swingin' back the other way!" (RIP Steve C.)

SO fun. Buddy of mine has the barbie version. About a 1000 miles on it. Stock....original tires. Fun to ride but it isn't out of break in so I couldn't rev it up....

Check this one...Trellis frame VTR.

If so he did a god damn good job, but it looks like a factory color scheme. I almost bought one of those 250 V-twin interceptors myself as a project a while back. You did a great job restoring that old girl, I'd rock the hell out of it. Neat little bikes. I really like the look of the enclosed front disc brake but I've heard that it was more prone to brake fade due to overheating than the open-disc models.

Yep. Genuine garage paint job. Polyurethane clear coat on top. Takes half a lifetime to learn how to do it right, in your spare time.
